Booneville (AR) Police Chief Albert Brown was recovering Wednesday from a leg wound he suffered when he was shot while responding to a call that a man was suicidal.

A news release from the Police Department said Brown and two other officers responded to a 911 call about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at an apartment where a man emerged holding a long gun and a handgun.

"The man came out of his apartment armed," the release said. "Chief Brown tried to disarm and tackle the suspect. During the struggle, Chief Brown received a gunshot wound to the leg and a dislocated shoulder."

The subject was arrested.
